Etymology

This form is likely a recent loan from standard Japanese. The form coósha (kúsha) "pepper" is attested in the 1818 Vocabulary of the language spoken at the Great Loo-Choo island in the Japan Sea, by Herbert John Clifford.

Cognate to Nagasaki こしゅー koshuu; Kagoshima and Kumamoto こしゅ koshu; Okinawan くそー kusoo (and its rendaku variants ぐす -gusu and ぐーす -guusu); and standard Japanese こしょう【胡椒】 koshou "pepper". Historically from こせう koseu. Ultimately of Chinese origin. Cognate to Mandarin 【胡椒】 hújiāo; Cantonese 【胡椒】 wu4 ziu1; Min Nan 【胡椒粉】 hô͘-chio-hún; Korean 고추 gochu and 후추 huchu; and Vietnamese hạt tiêu "pepper".
